The Tarboy SOUNDTRACK is now available for download here: http://www.hanialee.com/?page_id=200


Whoa! We're totally blown away by the response Tarboy's had so far :O We can barely keep up with all the incredible reviews, notes and emails! Thank you everybody for the daily feature and front page!

It's taken us a long time to finally upload Tarboy, so thanks to all the people who've been waiting patiently. We hope you enjoy it :) Check out the Bonus features too, we put a lot of work into it!

The score was composed by Newground's own Hania Lee.

Now that we've got this one out we can focus completely on Tarboy II.


pretty cool

Pretty good animation and concept, but it's not the most original thing i've ever seen. the world being over industrialized and robot slaves fighting back is a very common plot setup. I don't mean to be a total asshole by being one of the first people to give it a low rating. I have to admit that it was well animated and that the plot was executed well.

great concept

This is a fantastic concept for a heroic character. Great presentation. I like the old man that tells the story - whoever did the voice acting for him nailed it. The action scene in the dark room was a cut above. I did not like how Tarboy entered via the watercooler. That is not how watercoolers work. Sound and music was top notch... love the music during the dark room scene. Overall I thought this was very well done, but not really my cup of tea.

Nice animation, decent story, I like the ending

nicely but

good but,
- the maincaracter is just black, i cant relate to him or his pain/sorrow and that's a miss. His outlines/sillouette isnt that special either.. his hair is really corny.
- you lost me a bit when the shooting and explosions began, the were below the quality of the beginning.
- the end is too fast or something, you are watching and then 'is this the end?'

- the father/son is perfect, dont make it too hasty though(dads voice), the son's time to say something is good for that, nice
- the lighting in the dark with the cleaner was nice, also i laughed when he snaps the neck of the robot.

Some animation was far better then other parts in the movie

place 13

place 13 already, the reign of tarboy ends here
